Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a psychiatric mental disorder that involves obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors that significantly interfere with normal life. Obsessions are unwanted, recurrent, and disturbing thoughts which the person cannot suppress and that cause terrible anxiety and distress.

Compulsions are repetitive, ritualized behaviors that the person feels driven to perform to relieve the anxiety of the obsessions. Obsessions can be physical behaviors or mental actions. The obsessions and compulsive rituals can occupy many hours each day. People with OCD also typically avoid thing that trigger the obsessions.

There are many disorders that have been mistakenly labeled as OCD. Make sure you have a proper diagnosis by an expert. Read the OCD pages at this site to learn more.
